I wanted to emphasize a profound alone quote by Jean La Brucere; She says, ‘ All our unhappiness comes from our inability to be alone.’
Kindly do not misunderstand ‘ loneliness’ with ‘aloneness.’ But in common usage, it is mostly used as an overlapping word.
You can be incredibly lonely in a crowd or can be totally at ease in inner solitude even while being in a group.
Put merely, aloneness means ‘ a certain alright ness’ with oneself.
In aloneness, you are basically ‘okay’ at a mental level, and it doesn’t matter too much whether I am with somebody or not.
In profound aloneness, you know your self- worth, and you don’t get shaken or affected by external situations.
How do you become healthy and not feel lonely?
A significant mark of an alone person is that, even in an unfavorable condition, their mental strength is rock solid.
You won’t find then timid, or weak, or heartbroken easily. These are amazing people worthy of having as a great companion.
It’s a great myth to think that solitude or aloneness means feeling dejected, cutting ties from the world, escaping to the mountains, relieving stress, etc.
If you find somebody showing such behavior, know that person is currently going through a lot of inner turmoil and desperately looking for peace of mind. It’s the opposite of being alone.
Wherever you are, it doesn’t matter, ask yourself: Am I okay with my current life? Am I okay with who I am? Do I love myself? Or I always feel alone and empty, unloved, unwanted, sad, depressed, helpless, crying, or, feel like no one cares about me?
Aloneness is a state of mind in a different dimension where you love yourself and don’t bother whether you get attention from the world or not.
If you are currently feeling alone (lonely) due to a recent breakup, or ongoing ego clash in a relationship or the fear of being left out or rejected, reading our being alone quotes will sure lift your spirits.
I hope our collection of feeling alone quotes will help you overcome the current emptiness and sadness from your life and bring more calmness and depth into your life.
